In addition, the Company granted the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 724,638 shares of common stock at the public offering price. The Offering is expected to close on or about June 14, 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The gross proceeds to the Company, before deducting the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company and excluding any exercise of the Underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares of common stock, are expected to be approximately $43.5 million. The Company anticipates using the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes, including potential acquisitions of businesses and assets that are complementary to its operations.
The Underwriting Agreement contains representations, warranties, indemnification and other provisions customary for transactions of this nature.
